by e-mail, it is completely wrong. the u.s. postal service is not the victim of e-mail and text messages. it is the victim of alec and the koch brothers. why, you ask? quite simple, really. the usps is the number one employer of unionized labor in the united states and provides an affordable universal service that a private company could and would charge us all much, much more for. two huge no-nos for the right wing. the reason the right wing crafted the legislation to destroy the postal service. we're joined now by nationally and internationally syndicated radio host the brilliant thom hartmann who wrote an incredible piece about this very subject for truth out.org called the usps media hashtag fail. >> great to be with you. >> john: please complain what the postal accountability enhancement act is and what its effects have been. >> well, you know, there were some reasonable and some good changes in that act which is -- as far as i can tell, how it got out of the house government oversight committee henry waxman and other democrats basically signing of on it. it was passed by a

say, wolf. now back to you. >> he was a u.s. navy reserve lieutenant and we are told in the navy he was rated as a rifle marksman and pistol expert, according to his navy records. he was fired by the police department of los angeles four years ago. do we know what triggered four years later this rampage? >> reporter: well, he he brought up charges against an officer saying that this officer kicked a homeless man. it was determined later, according to police reports, that these charges were false by dorner. after a while, he was subsequently fired and he refers to that time and time again in his manifesto as the reason that he would wage a vendetta against officers, wolf. >> do we know what he's been doing for the last four years since he was fired from the lapd? >> reporter: unclear from this side in riverside. >> paul vercammen. thank you. we're going to stay on top of this story during our 6:00 p.m. hour. we're going to speak with chief police moose who was linked to the d.c. sniper. >>> let's move to today's dramatic confrontation up on capitol hill. for a short time today, prote
department cuts, according to this forced budget plan cut. just for some perspective, the u.s. is going to spend $88 billion this year, this year in afghanistan. we're going to have much more on this part of the story coming up later, barbara. thanks very much into here in washington, president obama is doing an end around the national press today. he's taking questions from local tv stations, blaming congress for doing nothing to avoid these forced spending cuts scheduled to take effect in just nine days. so what kind of cuts is the president willing to take? jim acosta confronted the white house press secretary today with that question. jim is joining us now. how did it go? >> reporter: wolf, here we go again. the white house and congress move one day closer to the massive forced spending cuts that go into effect at the end of next week. and even though they both agree it's a problem, they are both busy blaming each other to fix it. the white house sounding the alarm. poor children will be tossed out of classrooms, health services will be slashed, border security will be compromised a
with the head of the -- this will be the highest level u.s. meeting with syrian opposition since it began uprising nearly two years ago. more than 60,000 people have been killed in that war. >>> defense secretary nominee chuck hagel expected to be confirmed despite a contentious confirmation hearing. he spent hours answering questions from the armed services committee in the senate. lawmakers wanted clarification on various positions hagel has taken in the past. at one point he grappled over whether he was wrong to oppose the 2007 surge in iraq. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam. >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no. it's far more complicated than that. >> if confirmed, hagel will replace leon panetta as defense secretary and be the only republican in president obama's cabinet and the first vietnam veteran to hold that position. the transportation secretary who is also a republican expected to resign as well. this should be wrapped up with the senate vote for chuck hagel next w
'm heather childers. topping the news, new fallout on the benghazi attack. leon panetta saying that the u.s. military could not respond like a police department. >> this is not 911. you can't simply call and expect within two minutes to have a team in place. >> heather: is this a preview of what we could see when he testifies before the senate? a fair and balanced debate straight ahead. >> gregg: and the death of an american hero. he struck fear into the hearts of our enemies and now we have the tragic ending of chris kyle a sniper without equal in military history. >> heather: plus, reports that the american dream have may have been premature. kids believe that their tomorrow will be better than our today. >>> we begin with a fox news alert. a town in mourning as we awaited details on the alabama hostage crisis. the funeral for the bus driver gunned down by jimmy lee dikes. he has been hiding out in an underground bunker with a five-year-old hostage. jonathan, what happened at the funeral today? >> reporter: the funeral procession was led by the patriot guard riders and also a convoy of sc
seeking jobs in the u.s., but to criminals who want to murder, rape and kidnapping. lone criminals, these are the perils we are sure to face not just maybe, it's not paranoia to buy a gun, it's survival. this morning msnbc's joe scarborough described the op-ed as being laced with racial overtones. >> the republican party, if they were smart, their looters today would condemn it. but they're not smart, they're scared, they're going to get hammered in future elections if they allow this clown to continue to lead them around by their nose. they're shameful, they need to be leaders. >> all of this comes as gun control advocates rally again in connecticut to encourage lawmakers there to enact stricter gun laws. joining me now, democratic strategist david goodfriend and rachel smoke. first up, wayne la pierre refers to hurricane sandy under hellish conditions. new york observer says silver lining sandy, still no murders after the superstorm. regarding border security, according to huffington post, 2010 report said that the u.s. mexican border is among the safe es in the u.s. so there's a
. speaker, this is no time to eliminate preclearance. i'm reminded of a letter i wrote to the u.s. attorney's office, attorney general eric holder, to just in my city alone, the city of houston, to report 15 voter abuse cases. without the preclearance where would we be? or the proposal to eliminate the independent school district board of trustees, over a school district that has worked hard to survive, will be subjected to the preclearance to determine whether not only the students will be denied their right to learn in a school district they love and is fighting for their education, but that elected persons will be denied the right to serve and others denied the right to vote for them. the voting rights act protects all voters. it gives them all the right to vote, one vote one person. shelby county has raised the issue they should not be subjected to preclearance. they are beyond that. the district court, federal court decided in washington, d.c., that they were wrong. that preclearance is constitutional. and we know that well because about -- because when we had the privilege of re-autho
jerusalem. >> arthel: dire new warnings about the focus impact sequestration could have on the u.s. military. allergy officials say the across the board cuts would force them to increase touring for soldiers deployed in afghanistan next we're and could put our national security at risk. steve centanni with more. tell us why is this such a threat to military readiness? >> arthel, a number of reasons. not enough money for proper maintenance of bases and equipment and more troubling, not enough money for the proper training of our troops. this would mean those serving in afghanistan would have to stay longer because not enough troops are being trained to replace them. a problem, according to former general who knows. >> youscientists discovered if u extend a soldier much beyond about nine or ten months, his fighting ability falls off, or you replace him with soldiers who haven't had the proper amount of training and the right equipment to go to afghanistan and survive in combat. >> already we've seen the decision to keep only one aircraft carrier in the persian gulf instead of two. >> arthel: i
, and continues the slow but steady economic recovery. it comes right after we learned the u.s. economy shrank for the first time in three years. gdp fell up .1% in the fourth quarter of 2012. part of the economic pause was because of hurricane sandy. but it was also because of big cuts in defense spending. >>> we also learned yesterday that members of the president's job council are out of a job. the council had a two-year charter that will not be renewed. this morning, speaker john boehner said this is the wrong time for president obama to scrap his jobs council and delay his budget. month after month, we see the same thing, high unemployment and even more debt. the white house knew this criticism was coming. >> when we hear some of the somewhat ridiculous criticisms about this, they come from people on capitol hill who have consistently opposed every growth initiative and job creation initiative the president has put forward. >> i want to bring in "washington post" political reporter karen tumelty and michael crowley. good morning. >> nice to be here. >> he asked the chairman of the white h
for secretary of state, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. that's what is written there. for the president, is this about taking care of an old friend or trying to make up for rice? >> actually, i think it's about choosing what he believes is the best person for the job and sticking by him, which i think is admirable. look, the reality here is this is about politics. this is not about benghazi. if it was about benghazi, you could have held up john kerry. they didn't. this is something that exists between republicans and senator hagel because he dared questioned them about the iraq war. so that i think is the are reality that we're facing. i think the problem with the republicans is, be how much longer can they continue to play these games on these issues and think it's not going to hurt them? in fact, it already has. they are becoming a caricature of a political party because when you admit to the american people it's not about substance, it's about a 7-year-old issue that you have a problem with, a personal issue, that doesn't necessarily create a lot of confidence that your criticisms ar

mondale, democrat of minnesota. mr. mondale entered the u.s. senate at the beginning of our national war on poverty under lbj. senator mondale outlasted president johnson in office, but he kept working on that basic idea, of using public policy to help out the least well off among us. by 1971 he succeeded in getting passed with big bipartisan support a bill that would have created a daycare system essentially in this country. universal preschool for american kids. the tuition was on a sliding scale so everybody could afford it. senator mondale got his bill passed and it went to the guy who was president by then. it went to richard nixon. and richard nixon vetoed it even though it passed with lots of republican votes. president nixon said the idea of preschool for everyone had quote, family-weakening implications. he said quote, the child development envisioned in this legislation would be truly a long leap into the dark for the united states government and the american people. a long leap into the dark. 40 years after president nixon said no to preschool for all american kids with the we

. he was scheduled to run in australia, brazil, the u.s., the uk and russia. while pistorius is in court on tuesday for a bail hearing, reeva's family says they'll be a memorial service for her as producers of her reality show released this farewell message from her, meant to be to the cast, but which now becomes her last words, her last good-bye. >> i take with me so many amazing memories and things that are in here and in here that i'll treasure forever. i'm going to miss you all so much. i love you very, very much. >> what a sad story that is. robyn kurnow reporting for us. we'll have more on that later here in "the situation room" as well. other news we're following including some painful budget cuts that will be felt by all of us. they're not only days away, they could affect you in some unexpected ways. plus, senator john mccain is alleging a massive cover-up on the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >> so it's the state department's fault? who would you blame? who is responsible then? i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always wa
that the u.s. government can order the killing of american citizens if they are believed to be senior operational leaders of al-qaeda or an associated force -- here's the key line -- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the united states. so that policy is that we believe justice department is saying it is perfectly legal to use drones, not just to go out and kill people that we think might some day plan an attack against the united states who are not friendly to the united states. but also to kill americans anywhere on the planet whom we think are traitors or may some day, plan something against the united states even if there is no evidence that they are now engaged in an active plot. raises the whole question about drone warfare. i'm torn about it because it's a different kind of warfare. i mean, certainly, i would like to know what you think about this. 1-866-55-press. the problem i believe is we've got this technology. we are using it. we are using it more than anybody has ever used it before. i mean i forget how many -- you kno
that is relate to the pentagon and to the u.s. military that will just be held in abians -- >> what do you think the british military and the french think when leon panetta turns up? >> well, they like leon panetta but what they will think is what they have been thinking for the last 2 1/2 years, is that the republican party in the united states has gone off the rails and is obstructing the normal order of business of the world's only super power, and this is the first time, martin, in the history of the defense department going back to the 1940s that there's been a filibuster of a nominee to head that department and i would wager that if it went to its predecessor that the department of war going all the way back in american history, this has never been done. these people are out of control in their obstructionism and the only thing to do is fight them all the way, and there are new tools that the president unveiled in his state of the union to do that with. the president should go to enlisted personnel, retired enlisted personnel all over the united states and say, chuck hagel is the first of
state legislature scott brown won that u.s. senate seat and found himself going to washington. now scott brown did not stay there long. he ended up serving only a partial term in ted kennedy's seat. when he had to defend that seat in this last election in november, he lost the seat as an incumbent by eight points. scott brown and herman cain were both announced this week as the latest contributors on the fox news channel. so that is what scott brown will be doing now with herman cain instead of legislating. while elizabeth warren has that seat now in washington. elizabeth warren made her debut this week at the banking committee that wall street was so eager to keep her from joining. her first round of questioning, she was questioning some bank regulators, demanding to know why no wall street banks ever end up on trial when they break the law. that round of questioning has already become as much as a viral sensation as might be possible for a round of banking committee questioning. spontaneously, i should note in the moment when she was asking those questions of the bank regulators about

him at the height of the campaign and said obama is going to win and the u.s. starts to adjust for that. between him winning a race that netanyahu never thought he was going to win and missing no opportunity and netanyahu himself ending up in sort of a messy situation, i think that's interesting and it's an interesting context to the visit. >> mitt romney promised he would make israel his first. >> his first. i want to quickly mention and talk about the hagel confirmation hearings, i'm interested to watch, he will make it through the committee and get confirmed, but how many republicans are going to vote for him? right now only two of 45 are on the record saying they are yes votes. probably about 20 have not said anything. my concern was we know there is not going to be a filibuster. mccain and a few others said no filibuster. that's healthy for the process, but this normalizes bad ap sigz party behavior. if they they treat this as a party line vote, they vote no. i don't want cabinet members to be party line votes. the white house's party controls the senate and what about the
for the defense industry? >> it's already terrible -- it's not just the defense industry, it's the u.s. economy which has contracted because of the anticipated loss of defense in aerospace jobs. leon panetta was confirmed 100-0. let me repeat that. 100-0. and he actually has a copy of the congressional record signed by 100 senators. i told him he ought to sell it on ebay and get rich. this hasn't happened in years, and it sure isn't going to happen with chuck hagel whom we can discuss. but the whole idea that in this reckless fashion, congress is not stopping this move to sequester of the defense or the nondefense budget just boggles my mind. i haven't been there in two years, but the people who are there are shaking their heads. let me say this. i was in munich recently for the security conference, my 11th time with john mccain, lindsey graham and a on the of others. the europeans who have economic structural problems are trying to increase their defense capability and shaking their heads at us and looking at the fact that we don't have serious problems, but we're manufacturing these economic
